Thermoplastic Horizontal Centrifugal Pumps
Vanton CHEM-GARD CGA®
CHEM-GARD® CGA Thermoplastic Horizontal Centrifugal Pumps to ANSI B73.1
These quality built end suction thermoplastic pumps with centerline discharge and back pullout construction, combine the award winning wide open seal area features of our innovative CHEM-GARD® line of thermoplastic pumps with the standard dimensional and performance characteristics embodied in ANSI specification B73.1. They are fully interchangeable with any other pump manufactured to this specification without disturbing piping, baseplate, foundation, driver or coupling. At the same time, they incorporate thermoplastic construction offering complete resistance to the most corrosive, abrasive and other aggressive fluids.
The pump casing and impeller are molded from solid, homogeneous thermoplastics. The casing and flanges are armored with structural metal in order to accept the same nozzle loading as metal pumps while limiting fluid contact exclusively to non-metallic components.
The adjustable sliding inboard bearing design provides for quick and easy mechanical seal inspection while at the same time it minimizes impeller overhang and shaft deflection at higher critical speeds prolonging seal life. The open seal area accommodates most commercial seals including single, double, cartridge and balanced arrangements.
Optional features are available for control and safe operation including leak detection, temperature monitoring within the pump, and run-dry protection.
Vanton thermoplastic pumps are ideal for handling the broad range of corrosive, hazardous, toxic and other aggressive fluids used throughout the processing and manufacturing industries, in utilities, and in industrial and municipal water/wastewater treatment facilities. These fluids include: chemicals, biochemicals and pharmaceuticals, foods, mining slurries, pure water for semiconductor wafer fabrication, electroplating formulas, pickling liquors, paper/pulp bleaches, industrial and municipal noxious odors, sea water in fisheries and aquariums, and an endless list of product recovery/reuse as well as OEM applications.
* Baseplate dimensions will vary slightly with motor frame size. All dimensions are inches and are approximate and not to be used for construction purposes. Pump dimensions conform to ANSI B73.1.
As standard Vanton procedure, every pump is fully tested to applicable Hydraulic Institute specifications in our plant prior to shipment. Test reports for each pump are kept on file at the company.
